I lie alone while the city’s sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more day
Turn up the music and stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking

The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside
If I don’t see my friends, I won’t see my enemies
With defeatism and negativity
You fuckers sap all of my energy
Learning to choose between fight or flight
Sick of these walls so I won’t stay home tonight
It’s time for a change and some honesty

And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over
The way I’ve been living the past few years
It won’t be a shame if I never see myself again

The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside
I’ve already spent far too long waiting for my time
So I won’t run and hide

And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over

I lie alone while the city is sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more
Turn up the music, stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking
